Caribbean Jungle in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

MARCH 19-25, 2022

Welcome to the Jungle. This all-inclusive 6 night, 7-day retreat is going to give you a taste of magic. For one week I invite you to journey with me deep into the remote tropical rainforest of Costa Rica, a place where the wild remains untampered in its magic. In this invigorating jungle setting we will revitalize our physical bodies, and awaken our soul to spirit.

This retreat is aimed to get you back in touch with your inner being, with who you truly are behind all the layers of learned behaviors. To get you so still in what life really is that all your answers will be shown to you. Our days together will consist of grounding breath and movement, nourishing cuisine, connection ceremonies, embodiment rituals, and exploration of Self & Mother Nature. I am here to lead you to a place where you begin to peel back the layers of self, finally liberating the authentic, raw, and divine being you hold within your body. This is a Consciousness Expanding retreat, meaning that our emphasis will be on increasing our levels of self-awareness, under the guidance and facilitation of Spiritual + Embodiment Coach Vanessa Marrero Brown.

what our bodies were made for


When we move, our bodies create dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Movement literally makes your body, mind, and soul happy. Movement heals. Through movement of the physical body, we also move the energy within our inner beings. We connect with ourselves on a deeper level in the moment. It becomes like a ceremony with yourself, in whatever you choose. Movement can be free dance, yoga, animal flow, bodyweight HIIT, swim, run… doing what feels good for your body + soul. We will explore all types of movement during this retreat allowing you to embody ad explore all, re-connecting to self.

The medicine is in the food


Medicine was never meant to come from a manmade lab. The real medicine comes from the food you eat. On this retreat you will experience food on a different level of farm to table. You will feel the physical and mental changes that attuning a diet can do. When you tune in to your body it tells you what it needs.

We will touch on Ayurveda practice, and how the food on your plate will give you life or slowly add to the separation from yourself. Fresh, organic, free –range, farm to table, you will taste it all, live it all, feel it all. Get ready to awaken all of your senses!

we allow our thoughts to have space


Through meditation we allow our thoughts to have space, we allow the inner noise to be seen and be released. Meditation is a learned practice. Almost like a remembering. We calm the nervous system with nature and breath, and we connect with our truth, we embody it, and live from this space. Sitting with your own mind, with your emotions, is the practice of connecting with the Divine. Through listening within is how we can truly know how to find happiness. We practice being in the present moment, on observing the feeling, and learning what it means to elevate your vibration. Allowing the light being inside of you to rise.

About Vanessa

Understanding how we function, why we are here, what are emotions, the power of the brain, how to find fulfillment in life, are all areas of this human experience that fascinate me. They have lead me down my own healing journey inward, allowing me to experience one extreme side of disconnect with myself, to years later embodying true connection to divine. It is not until we allow ourselves to crumble in the face of the false stories we tell ourselves that we can fully feel truth within.

My purpose on this planet is to be what I needed during my journey, to be the light of your reflection. To teach you tools, practices, and how to be with your-self, and how to lead life from this sacred space, to allow instead of force. I am here to help awaken you back to you, to your essence, your magic, your divinity, and to your creative power in being.
